The Aurora Police Department interviewed an "associate" of James Holmes last night .. but are calling reports that the person is a second suspect "unconfirmed and inaccurate."

The Aurora PD says, "There are multiple unconfirmed and inaccurate news reports about a second suspect. In regards to those reports: An associate of Holmes was interviewed this evening. There is no reason to believe that he is involved. Further details of this investigation will not be released at this time."

According to FOX News, police were looking for this associate because he was the only student from Holmes' program police had not been able to reach. 

Holmes will appear in court for the first time Monday morning.

Hopefully the FBI will investigate US citizens who join groups like this before we read about other mass murders in other US cities. https://www.facebook.com/groups/397531423639465/

Has anyone heard how he got in the emergency door? I read one article that said someone in the theatre got a phone call and opened the door but this is the last I have heard about it.

It's a very strange case: the very individual this madman choose to identify with, is himself (though fictional) mad. That being so; it possibly removes some of the motive and instead, begs the question why emulate a madman? It is a paradox. Add that to the fact that he didn't appear deranged or mad before, and it appears to point to something quiet different, perhaps disaffected hurt . Psychiatrists normally have to work in the field for years before they become victims to either transference or else simply spending "too much time at the loony bin" (with the loonies...). It is unprecedented that an individual should be so EFFECTed simply by studying the subject in a PhD... We know elevated stress can cause the brain to "tip over" in terms of dopamine failure but can any kind of inherited schizophrenia account for such wanton destruction? I think key is this guy's failure to secure meaningful employment (given his intelligence) and the insults he doubtless received working at MD's probably infuriated his pride (given his intelligence) to boiling point. The lesson in this is this: don't abuse menial staff: They might be a "failed artist" soon-to-be serial killer...
